WHY

Is it, that everyone takes the piss out of Lars Ulrich, mocks him, degrades him and basically abuses him for sueing Napster, and 'selling out', when he was defending the music industry

Yet when it comes to Joe Satriani sueing Coldplay for 'el plaguerismo', you guys have no problem with it, even though he's getting alot of money because someone wrote a song that sounded like his (they stole it but thats not the point) and not defending anyone but himself?

DISCLAIMER

I have no beef with Joe, and I think he's quite cool, and he was right for sueing them ***s . But everyone who abuses Lars and supports Joe is QUITE hippocritical. And disregard my sig

No.
Yeah, although Lars is a bit of a man's genitalia, he is not anywhere near as bad as all the trend followers say. He is still a huge part of a truly amazing group.

You honestly think you're average person has given this any thought?

And to be honest, Lars Ulrich is generally a dick (from my experience, anyway), so people wanna get at him in any way possible. And Joe Satriani is generally a nice guy, so people let him off.

Because Lars Ulrich is the worst thrash metal drummer ever (maybe metal period), and Joe Satriani is one of the best modern virtuosos

Besides, there's a difference on who's sueing who:


Lars Ulrich is sueing his own fanbase

Satch is sueing a ****ty pop band. Even though there probably is no plagiarism (I don't think so), Coldplay is a stupid generic pop-rock band anyways

I've noticed alot of people in the Pit follow hate bandwagons, it might also explain alot of them are 14 and only judge a band based on the musical ability of a band instead of them having good songs or not.

I don't mind Lars. Its just all the napster hubbub, and then him downloading Death Magnetic, and making it seem he didnt do anything wrong, when a few years back he tore people a new one for doing the exactly same thing.

It wasn't the same thing though. And I can see Lars' point, if he wanted to give it away he would, if he didn't, no-one else had the right to
#31
It's because Lars is a tool, he's really annoying, and he's just... A tool, quite an annoying person, and he's not even that much of a great drummer, he's an average drummer with the right riffs.

i think the statistic is they kill more than lions or something.
but yea very dangerous, especially when feeling critical...
#33
For me, at least, I dislike Lars as a person because, to my understanding and opinion, he lacks two very important things I require to like a musician.

1. The skill he cracks himself up to have.

2. A personality devoid of greed and egotism.

Unfortunately, IMO he lacks both and therefore I can conclude I do not like him as both a musician or as a person.

i dont get it, doesnt having good songs mean ur musically talented? also depends on what u mean by "good song". someone with a degree in music composition would have a different opinion from u on musical talent.
In speed versus emotional playing, i think of an M16 versus an M24. You can have 650 rounds per minute, or one round, one kill. Both should be in your arsenal.

I don't know but a friend of mine did get a chance to kind of meet Lars, but from what I heard Lars completely ignored my friend and told the crowd to piss off. So yeah I can see how people hate him, because he's an asshat I guess. But Satch, I'm not too sure about him.

To me if you are going to sue someone for taking a riff, it's kind of pointless because a lot of songs sound like each other these days. But if you sue a company for basically letting people download your songs for free, I can understand that. I guess people don't really understand that these musicians are performers, and they need to get paid too. It's like you are chef and try to sell your pie, but people break into your bakery and just eat and share the pie but you get the idea.

i don't agree that it's hypocritical at all. Joe is suing another musician/group of musicians because they're making a ton of money out of his work and are winning awards for his song (at least, Joe would claim this is the case). The average napster using wasn't making any money out of downloading metallica's songs- and certainly wasn't winning grammies etc.. Big difference, ergo not hypocritical.

Bit like how, personally, I'd consider it wrong for someone to illegally copy CDs and then sell them on, but if someone wants to make a free copy of a CD they own for a friend, that's ok. The first is piracy, the second isn't.

In my opinion; the law may take a different view.

Everyone suggesting that it's different because Joe rocks and Lars doesn't (regardless of whether or not that's true- it probably is ) IS being hypocritical, though (imo), justice isn't just available to the cool.

Plus they're missing the point, as I suggested earlier in my post, they're two competely different situations.

If you're in a collaborative band, how can you jusge a single member's musical talent by the band's output?
